Theocentric Preaching notebook

D aryl Dash has posted the notebook for his recently conducted Theocentric Preaching seminar on his site in PDF format… Theocentric Preaching Seminar Notes. It looks helpful, although I haven’t worked my way through all of it yet. I was struck by this statistic:
bq. According to a study by _Preaching and Pulpit Digest_, 80.5% of sermons are anthropocentric. Most sermons are not grounded in the
character, nature, and will of God.
One of the ironic things is that Daryl cites the source as being Wells, “The D-Min-ization of Ministry.” Yet Daryl is pursuing a D.Min. in an attempt to help reverse this trend in preaching.

    It is ironic, isn’t it?
    To add to the irony, It was assigned reading for the D.Min. Some of my fellow students were ready to storm the office of Dr. Wells when they read it.
    It’s actually a good article/chapter.
